BCA signs partnership with Berkeley National Laboratory for test-bedding green building technologies
The Building and Construction Authority has inked a partnership with US-based Lawrence Berkeley National Laboratory to build a facility for test-bedding green building technologies.
The Authority says the collaboration is pivotal to developing new innovations and solutions for greater energy efficiency of buildings in Singapore.
The new facility is to be built at the BCA Academy.
It will be modelled after Berkeley Lab's FLEXLAB located at Berkeley Hills.
The facility to be completed in 2013 will be the first in Asia whereby solar panels can be rotated to catch the sun's rays.
